Our deepest sympathy on the passing of Mr. Bob. Mr. Bob was one fine gentleman. Our family appreciates his service to our Country during a difficult time in our history and then coming out of service to help make America great. Please accept our prayers for comfort. He most certainly has joined the choirs of Angels with his deep rich voice. Lee, Carol, Joseph, Amelia

Such a great picture of Mr. Bob. Just the way I will always remember him. I feel so blessed to have been able to share my childhood with The Harvey Family growing up in Epting Church. He and Daddy were two of the Quartet in the choir at Epting for many years. May your sweet memories help you through the tough days ahead. Keeping the family in my thoughts and prayers.

Grace, Pam, and Barbara, We are very sad to learn of Bob's death. I have so many happy and wonderful memories of him along with all of you. I loved his dry wit. I loved to hear him sing at Epting. He had a wonderful voice. He was also very talented in his woodwork. May God's love and peace be with each of you now and in the days to come. Love and Hugs to each of you. Harriett and John Rucker

Praying for God's peace and comfort to be with the Harvey family. I have many fond memories of the Harvey family, especially during my high school years of softball and church league basketball.
